Why is the 737-300 in a white scheme similar to Virgin Atlantic and not like the others? Ran out of red paint?

They are actually ex ansett airliners so they are incompleated in the paint job. OK? Or are they actually going to leave them like that?  Sad

I know it may be misleading because of the bright lights in the hangar, but the white fuselage looks very shiny as if it was purposely painted white, and not white because they didn't paint the ex-Ansett fuselage.

I actually quite like it like that, although from a distance it looks like a Qantas aircraft.

Noticed the Air New Zealand 732 in the background of the second photo painted in Transavia colours, what is the rego of this aircraft??

Also the QF Dash8 in the first photo, i'm guessing this is ex QFNZ, where is this aircraft going???

What's Transavia doing buying 737-200? I thought they flew loads of modern things? Surely in today's market even a modern aircraft wouldn't cost much?..although they probably want to save money too.

Freedomair737 It was ZK-NAA.

Don't know about the Dash.

CX/Braniff I'd imagine it's mainly white because it's a short term lease and painting it all wouldn't be economical.

Transavia have recently given us 2 733s.. perhaps the 732 was part payment? *shrug*

It's a Dash-8 I believe. Looks like QF.
